It was common to see oxen, goats, sheep, donkeys, etc, in the streets. Apparently they would be let out to roam during the day and return home at night. And you would sometimes see them being led to the market.
Another typical street… they seemed to look all alike. My husband with a terrific sense of direction said he would feel lost so easily there because every street looked the same.
I pray the Lord will recall these pictures to my mind in those moments that I begin to think… I need a bigger home or better decorations, etc., etc….. and replace those thoughts with thanksgiving. We are all so abundantly blessed here in America.
